China is the human rights violator nr. 1. Ethnic minorities, primarily Tibetans und Uyghurs, are oppressed. Several hundred thousands of people are in arbitrary detention. The death penalty is executed frequently. Since P.R. China started persecuting the Falun Gong meditation movement in 1999, over 1000 victims are known by name which died of torture. Civil rights activists, unionists and state controlled Christian churches are victims of intimidation, repression, arbitrary detention and maltreatment.
